Perseus Publishing
Emily Carr’s journals from 1927 to 1941 portray the happy, productive period when she was able to resume painting after dismal years of raising dogs and renting out rooms to pay the bills. These revealing entries convey her passionate connection with nature, her struggle to find her voice as a writer, and her vision and philosophy as a painter.

Book News
In 1927, after decades of working in obscurity, Canadian painter and writer Emily Carr was invited to participate in an exhibition at the National Gallery. During her cross-country journey to the exhibition, she began recording her experiences, thoughts, and emotions--a practice she would continue throughout most of the rest of her career. This reprint of a volume originally published by Clarke, Irwin & Company in 1966 presents Carr's journals along with a new introduction by Gerta Moray (art history, U. of Guelph).
